Modern French Eclectic

Forget going over the rainbow. This Preston Hollow renovated French Eclectic luxury home takes you inside the rainbow. Dorothy and Toto would be right at home.

We all know the mantra today is to paint everything white. But, there are exceptions. This renovated French Eclectic house is one of them.

I think she succeeded beautifully.
